BBQ heaven, Atlanta
If there’s anything we love more than BBQ, it’s a celebration of BBQ, which is why we're already warmed up and ready to chow down on the best BBQ the city has to offer every night this week. You heard us: BBQ. Every night for a week. Yep, with participating restaurants like Smoke Ring, Sweet Auburn BBQ, Smokebelly and more, Atlanta’s looking mighty tasty this week.

Tiki Tuesday at the Bookhouse
Bookhouse Pub, Midtown, 736 Ponce De Leon Ave.
You don’t have to be a fan of Twin Peaks to get into the sweet tiki creations at the Bookhouse Pub, but it can’t hurt. Every Tuesday the kitchen is whipping up tacos made with whatever tickles their fancy, and the rum is flowing like wine. Dr. Jacoby would be proud.

Opening: The 5th of July
Atlanta Contemporary, Westside, 535 Means St.
Sure, the 4th of July is famous for parties, fireworks and BBQs, but what about the day after? This group exhibition explores what happens after the guests leave and the grill’s gone cold, featuring works in a variety of media by Charles Harlan, Katherine Berhardt and more.

Open Mic at Mammal Gallery
Mammal Gallery, Downtown, 91 Broad St.
We love Mammal Gallery, and they just took the crush factor up a million points by adding an open mic night. All acts are welcome- sign up starts at 8, and the show starts at 9, so be sure to check back the first Tuesday of every month for singing, dancing, poetry, and whatever else Atlanta’s creative community feels like doing.

Half & Half
Smith’s Olde Bar, Midtown, 1578 Piedmont Ave.
Half music, half comedy, all awesome. The Atlanta Room at Smith’s Olde Bar was made for local talent (it’s in the name of the room, y’all), and local musician Zale is kicking it off. Round out the evening with comedy from Mark Kendall and an improv set from Witless Protection, and it’s just a big Atlanta love-fest.
